known, the retirement of vice president kevin martin and the retirement of our paralegal, steve johnson. that most recently happened two weeks ago. we are definitely going to fill the void that steve has left, i hope to fill the void and fill the shoes of kevin martin. we know it's a lot to ask but i can assure you that president delanus and i will make every effort to work with the chief as we have done since being on the executive board of the poa for the last 9 years. but before i do i want to acknowledge kevin martin who has 28 years of service not just with the san francisco police department but the san francisco sheriff's department and especially acknowledge steve johnson, who joined the san francisco police department in 1971, served 30 years and since that time has worked tirelessly along with kevin for the rights of our members and he has worked with every commissioner here. he's going to be a big loss to the poa, he wanted to be here tonight, he could not make it. he is in good health and spirits but i do have letters to each one of the commissioners on behalf of steve.
of all i want to thank steve ritchie, i know how full your plate is. and i know how long you have been working on this, and how complicated it is in some ways. and in some ways not that complicated. but i know how much effort you put in. and i want to thank but for the lake merced task force, but for all of you coming and keeping us on point on this. and reminding us the history and value of this important asset of the puc's. and i am also discouraged that no one from rec and park is here. because i feel like they should be. it's an important conversation and we are trying to get a common understanding if not relationship going with regards to this site. to keep on a big-picture view. there are several assets that the puc, parks and real estate that the puc owns that rec and park manages. and i don't know if we have, maybe this is a conversation for a later time. mous for each individual parcel. or an overarching mou, that we are the owners and you are the managers, and you do recreation and we don't. but i think it's something that we should consider if we don't have individuals or an

and fundamental side with steve cortes. good to see you both. one has been a stellar performer and the other not so much. what do you like right now? >> bill, you just summed it up. the news came out over the weekend and the market is telling you what you should believe in. netflix is up 1% and amazon down 3.5%. look at the chart in amazon, you can see it's been showing us this over the last four months. amazon put a high in at 261. about eight days ago tried to take out that high and couldn't do it. it put in a double top. that's a sign of a -- you know, of a failure. you have a stock like amazon who basically -- the stock failed at 261 and now we have a 20-day moving average which it broke through and 209-day moving average, the last time it broke through the 20-day moving average it fell 13%. now we look over at netflix, that's a totally different story, right you? said it was a dog. it bottomed out at $54 and broke above its 20-day moving average and stayed above its 20-day moving average for the last four weeks. if it stays above its $20 moving average we're going to long this. our pric
a second prime. the guy is amazing. >> there's been so much talk about how would steve nash fit under the offense there. the lakers were playing well before nash came back. today what we saw is nash can run that offense and control that team. >> yes. and now you're seeing a more cohesive unit. instead of five guys on the court trying to score, you're seeing one unit with steve nash out there. double digit assist for him today. vintage steve nash. they needed to get him back healthy and he is right now. >> i just got to say for the viewers, check out this haircut. from the 1980s. that made the broadcast for me. the next game, thunder and heat. arguably the two best players in the nba right now, lebron james, kevin durant. >> more of the same. lebron is the most well rounded player in the game. you watch him and think of magic johnson. he doesn't need to score 30, 40 points a game for this team to win. he wants to be a facilitator. if asked to do the scoring, he can. for the heat, it's all about defense. when they defend, they look like they have six guys on the court instead of five. t
to be too much of a fight for president? gentlemen, thank you. i want to start with steve on this one. this sunday when given the opportunity to defend hagel, chuck schumer i just mentioned, refused to do so. listen to what this very smart senator from new york had to say. >> that's his choice. i think once he makes it, his record will be studied carefully. but until that point, i think we're not going to know what's going to happen. >> can you support him? >> i'd have to study his record. i'm not going to comment until the president makes a nomination. >> steve, i have a sense that this knocking of this candidate has gone beyond neocons, people of the right. and including people who are just generally pro-israeli which is about most people in politics. i get the fear -- i have to call it fear because i liked hagel, that he may be in trouble now. the shots that have been taken at him about calling it the jewish lobby which is a problem because obviously people are very pro-israeli from the right. to use that term these days is the kind of thing that just ends up causing a lot of probl
to carry guns. joining me now is dr. steve perry, host of "save my son." steve, good to have you here and hearing about what's gone in virginia and the possibility of teachers might be given permission to carry a gun in to the classroom. much of this debate has been fueled by the fact that the ceo of the nra said it's only going to take a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy with a gun. are you worried about where this conversation is doing and that's the slippery slope, talking about stopping guns? >> absolutely. what we have done is allowed hysteria to step in and get us afraid of what was otherwise a safe setting. the american public schools are safe. approximately 70 million children went to school last friday and came home. their schools are not unsafe. in fact, whether it be virginia or new jersey, in my school in hartford, we have ten different points of entry or exit as they're designed to carry the load of 700 children. you would have to post an armed guard at every single door and even if you did, if they came in with an assault rifle, with 30 rounds in the clip, they're go

? joining me now, senior economics writer or for "the wall street journal" steve moore. steve, thanks for making it in today. >> hi, jamie. we're having a white christmas in chicago. so it is a lot of fun. jamie: i know chicago, burr. the numbers are also pretty chilling for retailers who do what percentage of their business during the holiday season? >> you know, those months of november and december are absolutely crucial, jamie, for the retailers. about 40 to all their business all year is done in those two holiday months. so it's, not very good news that the retail numbers came in, you called them lackluster. and that's probably putting it charitiably. this was the worst year since 2008. it is actually, surprising, jamie, because if you look at some other indicators, consumer confidence had actually bumped up a little bit in the last couple months. we have, i wouldn't read too much into this because other indicators of the economy are looking up right now. jamie: so do you think it's an anomaly that it isn't going up? is it an indication if we go over the fiscal cliff there's conc

the past decade. steve centanni has more from us from washington. >> multiple deployments and combat injuries are said to be causing this troubling spike in alcohol and drug abuse among active duet military. democraticked by the institute of medicine. their study concluded earlier this year and sponsored by the department of defense shows that 20% of our active duty military personnel report they engaged in heavy drinking in 2008. binge drinking rose from 35% of personnel in 1998 to 47% in 2008. drug abuse of illegal and prescription drugs rose from 2% in 2002 to 11% in 2008: the report recommended better screening and that's just what the marine corps is doing, according to a directive issued in month the purpose of the screening program is to provide gheanders and additional tool to provide marines and sailors in their commands at risk for the adverse effects of alcohol abuse or misuse. the report notes that alcohol has long been a part of military culture. but it recommends better leadership on the frish top commanders all the way down. and it says this spike in cases results part
the fiscal cliff. let's get to our senior economic reporter, steve leesman, with his predictions for the economy in 2013. >> reporter: >>> trying to figure out what's going to happen in 2013 depends on one very important development -- whether the u.s. goes over the fiscal cliff in a few days' time, and for how long. if it's avoided, there's considerable upside for the economy. we could see at least one and maybe two quarters of growth above 3%. the kind of growth that would put people back to work and lower the unemployment rate. why? because business has been holding back investment amid the uncertainty. unleashing business spending would add to the growth from the nascent rebound in housing and from the consumer who has hung in there despite tough times. in fact, we could see unemployment drop below 7%. although it might first rise, more work into the work force who have been discouraged but can't find work. then could it fall. as for the fed, i think the market may be overstating its expectations for assets purchased from the central bank in 2013. at the current pace, the new

department public information officer, steve huffman. mr. huffman, thank you for joining us. one of the churches, trinity episcopal suffered a lot of damage. part of the roof is gone, front part of the parish is gone. and they went through a $1 million renovation. thank goodness it didn't happen when the church was packed. as daylight breaks what is the biggest challenge in terms of cleanup? >> we had public works crews working throughout the night and alabama power crews working to restore power in those affected areas. these guys -- i mean, unfortunately, this was not anything new to us. now, tornadoes are, but we're used to hurricanes, so we deal with power outages and things like that in emergencies such as this. our guys are well trained to respond to the types of incidents? >> how rare is it to have these tornadoes at this time of the year and nobody hurt, so you must have had pretty good warnings out there? >> we have been told a couple of days ahead of time to expect some severe weather to include tornadoes, and i think everybody was prepared for that. of course, we were

behind the ad. steve, welcome to the show. >> thanks so much for having me. melissa: i understand that this is a parody and it is meant to start the discussion and that's why we're having you on tonight and i'm going to rise right to the bait and tell you as a mom of small kids and someone who follows industry closely i'm totally offended how disingenuous the words in your ad are. let's start with some of them. you say congress gives the fossil fuel industries, 10 dal billion your subsidies? no they're not. they're exxon hard-earned profit. not giving them to the government to feed the beast that keeps spending and spending our money. instead they're allowed to hang onto a small portion of their profits. >> that is actually not really accurate. there have been numbers of studies, most recently from the organisation for economic co-operation and development but also last year we saw a bill proposed in congress from senator sanders and representative elliso, all of which identify over $10 billion annually that are going to the fossil fuel industry in subsidies. melissa: but you say
